Thomas Lindsay
(?–1843)
Thomas Lindsay was born in Scotland and came to the United States before 1800. Below is a biographical note, probably by Anne Durfee Gauss.
Thomas Lindsay, Jr. was a merchant, evidently a prosperous one, in Charleston and Columbia, S. C. before coming to St. Charles County. There used to be an old account book about the Johns house [I haven't seen it -- SDC], with items of his buying and selling. His home near Elm Point, St. Charles County, was called Mulberry Grove. A further account of him is elsewhere in this book. "Pioneer Families" says he died in 1843. Also that Rev. Thomas Russell Durfee came to Missouri in 1827, and married Anne Glenday in 1828. She was a niece of Mr. Lindsay and lived with him.

Thomas Lindsay was an ardent Prebyterian and was one of the founding members of the First Presbyterian Church in St. Charles, Missouri, and was involved in founding Lindenwood College, now w:Lindenwood University.
